Title: 1920 - Prohibition

About: The USA enacts a nationwide ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933. Despite this, millions of Americans were willing to drink liquor illegally, which gave rise to bootlegging (the illegal production and sale of liquor) and speakeasies (illegal, secretive drinking establishments), both of which were capitalized upon by organized crime.
